Biblical heroes challenged and outwitted tyrants, from Pharaoh (Moses) to Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel), to Artaxerxes III (Esther), to Caesar (Jesus) to emperor Domitian (St John in Revelation).

2,500+ kids are still in detention. I know there's lots of other news, but this crisis must not drift from headlines until it's resolved. And that doesn't just mean reuniting families—it also means taking concrete steps to address trauma our government deliberately caused.

This hangs over my desk right now as guidance for these days: “Evil can be opposed without being mirrored. Oppressors can be resisted without being emulated. Enemies can be neutralized without being destroyed.” ― Walter Wink

“They have spoken out loud and clear, and what they’ve said is they are experiencing enforced hunger, enforced dehydration, enforced sleeplessness. They are terrorized, and I think it is time for the courts and the public to hear their voices.”

The trauma caused by the arrest was clear: in a journal entry after the incident, Casey spoke of the stigma of being arrested, saying he felt like a “disease” and a “vile monster.” The 10yr old said he felt scared every time “left his parents’ sight.”

Around 70% of Americans don't have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency. So Chicago is thinking about giving everyone $500 a month.

The root of modern systemic racism is SLAVERY; there is no such thing as racial justice w/o economic justice. As long as wealth, resources & power are concentrated among the white elite w/ POC representing bulk of the exploited labor force, we're simply modifying forms of slavery

The Head of Homeland Security, speaking of white supremacists and Neo-Nazi's in Charlottesville, just said "it's not that one side was right and one side was wrong." They murdered a woman. They viciously assaulted a man. They are in prison for these things.

My God. The Trump administration ordered at least 70 different INFANTS who were separated from their parents to appear in court to defend themselves ALONE. Many were taken from breastfeeding mothers. An abomination. Never mention pro-life to me again
